While this could possibly cut down on the number of abortions (as many republicans would like), this will also greatly increase the number of women who have issues with their abortions or look for alternative methods of aborting the child. In some cases, abortion is the only option. Personally, I am a college student and would not be able to take care of a child (nor carry it for 9 months) were I to become pregnant. That would forever change the future that I have worked so hard for. While adoption is always an option, carrying the child also affects women's lives in many ways. Each woman has her own right to decide what is best and that right should not be taken away.
